Adnan Syed: Overturned (ID Special Tuesday September 27, 2022)

Christmas Terror

Tonight, Adnan Syed: Overturned, an updated version of the previously broadcast ID original special, will make its debut on Investigation Discovery. Syed’s sentence was vacated after he had served more than 20 years of a life sentence for the murder of his ex-girlfriend Hae Min Lee, leaving both supporters and opponents wondering what will happen next in the highly publicised and contentious case.

By including the breaking news of Syed’s release, the updated version of the special will bring this amazing tale full circle and provide an in-depth examination of how skilled true-crime journalism can completely alter the course of a case that many had assumed to be resolved.

The documentary, which originally aired in 2016 under the title ADNAN SYED: INNOCENT OR GUILTY?, challenges the accuracy of his conviction and deconstructs the Lee murder investigation. In the course of an hour, ADNAN SYED: OVERTURNED continues the discussion that was started by the public’s interest in the case that resulted in Syed’s now-overturned conviction. The original special delves deeply into the lives of Syed and Lee in order to provide a better understanding of who they were at the time of this tragedy. It also features never-before-seen interviews with experts and important players who were directly involved in Syed’s trial and the investigation into Lee’s murder.

Adnan Syed: Overturned Is produced for Investigation Discovery by Lincoln Square Productions, LLC.

Airdate: Saturday September 24, 2022 at 9.00pm on Investigation Discovery.
